We stand united

Recently, sportswoman Eva Shockey posted a picture of a 500 lb. black bear she shot in North Carolina on social media. This bear was the biggest she had ever bagged and she was proud. But not everyone was a fan of her harvest. Eva has received thousands of death threats. And unfortunately, Eva is not the first sportswoman to come under fire for being a hunter.

Today we are taking a stand because we are tired of the negativity. More than 37.4 million hunters and anglers across the United States contribute billions of dollars to conservation each year. Arguably without hunters and anglers, wildlife and their habitat would be in jeopardy.

Please join us in thanking Eva for continuing to be a positive force in the hunting and angling community by signing our petition:

“On behalf of sportsmen and women from across the United States, thank you Eva Shockey for continuing to educate the public about what it means to be a hunter. Like you, we are conservationists who enjoy getting outside and harvesting our own dinner. Like you, we pay license fees and excise taxes on hunting, fishing and shooting equipment that contribute over $3 billion to conservation each year. Like you, we are ambassadors for hunting and fishing and work to pass our hunting and fishing heritage from generation to generation.

Please keep fighting the good fight, Eva, and know we stand united in support.”
